Toxicity And Cancer Treatment

Nutrition and hydration are very important in order to avoid the toxicity of chemo and radiotherapy. “Drinking enough fluids is a natural way of flushing the body out of all these toxicities," describes Carla Araya, Registered Dietitian with Miami Cancer Institute, and also advises a healthy diet, because it helps with the treatment toxicity. Alicia Soler-Cancio, Advanced Practice Provider for the Survivorship Program at the same place, says physicians take each patient individually and then they decide the treatment and if there is something that has to be adjusted for each one.
